RYT 200 | hatha, vinyasa

Preethi completed her 200-hour through the Yoga Center Retreat.

Preethi was introduced to yoga at a very young age by her mother, who originally learned yoga in India and was committed to an asana, pranayama, and meditation practice. “I myself began practicing yoga as an adult in 1998 in Portland, Oregon and fell head over heels in love with it! Since then, I have had a very consistent, dedicated personal practice. I feel energized, sense of focus and purpose, relaxation and peace, all at once when practicing. My long-held dream of becoming a yoga teacher came true when I completed my 230 hour teacher training in June 2021 with the Yoga Center Retreat.”
Preethi is an attorney and practiced law for many years in Oregon, which she stopped in order to raise her three boys. She is also an interior stylist, with an academic background in residential planning. So, besides the world of yoga, interior design is a huge passion of hers! Her family, consisting of her husband, three boys and mini golden doodle, mean everything to her. She loves playing competitive singles and doubles tennis, cook and try new recipes with her husband, and spend quality time with her family and dear friends.
“I value my friends and people who are authentic, who can go deep, yet also have a quality of lightheartedness, a sense of humor. Other true loves of mine are: Reading meaningful fiction, a great cup of coffee, an amazing glass of wine, the adventures of traveling, food made with simple, natural ingredients, and last but not least, fashion and dressing, which I have adored since I was a little girl! I desire to genuinely connect with my students, help them to develop an authentic love of yoga, as well as achieve a higher quality of life.”

“Yoga is a dance between control and surrender – between pushing and letting go – and when to push and to let go becomes part of the creative process, part of the open-ended exploration of your well-being.”  ~Joel Kramer
